Welcome to Technology at MCMS!

We are a 1:1 MLTI (Maine Learning Technology Initiative) school with 11″ MacBook Air Laptops for students and 13″ laptops for teachers. We also have mounted projectors and apple tv’s in classrooms.

There is always a lot happening with technology in our school. Students use their devices for research, drill and practice, assessments, digital portfolios, long-term projects and assignment submission, just to name a few.

We also have an iTeam that helps students and staff with technology and models appropriate digital behavior.

Here are some useful tech resources for students and parents:

Student AUP–Student Computer, Internet Use, and Cyber Safety Policy
